Graduate Studies

Graduate studies are for those students who have already obtained a Bachelor's degree and wish to study in our MA program, or for those who have obtained an MA degree and wish to study in our PhD program or undertake independent research.
Visiting students from MA programs at other institutions may consider spending a semester studying in the MA program at CBS.
Researchers with at least an MA degree are eligible to apply for Research Affiliate status with us so long as their topic of research is compatible with the mission and research interests of CBS.
Online Learning
RYI offers a large number of online courses designed for students who wish to study but are unable to attend classes in Nepal. These cover Philosophy, Language and Specialized Studies and may be taken for credit or simply to further personal interests.
